SaucedoChavez, P.C. has an impressive history of working within the field of insurance both locally and on a nationwide basis. The attorneys in the firm work with a variety of clients, including individuals and insurance companies. Our broad practice benefits our clients because we have handled cases ranging from simple auto collisions to accidents involving death or catastrophic loss. Our main areas of practice include coverage issues, insurance bad faith claims, and expert testimony on insurance law issues.

  Insurance Bad Faith Claims

Our attorneys handle insurance bad faith claims on both sides of the coin. We provide assistance to insurers through coverage analysis, opinion letters and strong, effective defense in cases alleging bad faith regarding a business decision not to pay a claim or defend or settle with a third party. Additionally, SaucedoChavez attorneys work diligently on behalf of plaintiffs pursuing insurance bad faith claims when they have not been treated properly during the course of their insurance claim.

  Coverage Issues

Our lawyers are well versed in all aspects of insurance, ranging from interpretation of policy language to coverage disputes with the various insurance carriers. SaucedoChavez regularly represents clients in front of the Office of the Superintendent of Insurance on coverage denials, and has obtained outstanding results in difficult coverage situations.  Insurance coverage disputes are often difficult and contentious, and having an experienced attorney guide you through these complexities is essential to obtaining a positive outcome.

  Expert Testimony

As the former Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New Mexico, shareholder Morris Chavez is one of the foremost authorities on insurance law in the State of New Mexico. Mr. Chavez provides expert testimony on a wide range of complex insurance related issues.
